of defense is currently spending $10 billion more conducting the war effort in afghanistan this year than was estimated would be necessary. from what we understand, in order to make up for this estimation the department of defense will have to pull from other funds from its base budget, which is difficult because of sequestration and the other long-term spending limits imposed by the budget control act of 2011. the problems with trying to budget and plan for a war a year in advance and how unforeseen costs can arise. at the same time a $10 billion is copulation is a little alarming. -- miss calculation is a little bit alarming. general, can you explain to us how that underestimation occurred? that we insidere u.s. forces in afghanistan under estimated $10 billion for our requirements for this year. i can assure you we have gone back and look at every dollar we have spent to make sure we have spent to good effect. we have significantly reduced the money we are spending in afghanistan. i will go back and take a look at where the projection came from and why we are in the position we are in
that says maybe you should move back into tech and out of some of those defensive consumer areas. >> we're not there. we've been advocating what we've been calling stocks with bond-like characteristics for better part of two years and we really pressed that at the beginning of this year. we are not ready to make that change. if through earnings season and as we get into the full april data set you really were to see a significant correction, probably in the overall market but certainly in those capital spend sensitive sectors, then you might get a window to do it. but we would not be doing that today. >> obviously, barry, then the alternative might be to continue to buy some of these defensive names and we see them at the top of the list today. the verizons and pepsis. don't you run into a valuation question there? how expensive do they get when even they are not a good alternative? >> we don't think valuation matters a whole lot for those stocks. we think it is more about the huge tentacle created by fed buying and now bank of japan. some of that buying weakened into the u.s. this is t
trace, hi, jirnlgs as we all know, the department of defense is planning to downsize the military over the next few years as we also conclude our business in afghanistan. do you believe the large amount of dod contractors and military xoert personnel will flood the job market and increase the demand for goods? no, trace, by the way the army and navy don't move that fast. there would be a peace dividend, that happened in the '90. i don't think you should look at this issue in a way to make money off it, though. it's really not a needle-mover. as a matter of fact, it can be negative for a lot of the defense companies, as we know. and they have been under a cloud because of these cuts. here's one from danny in new york. hi, jim, i heard you say considering the downside of an equity that you would consider a stock than a put. please elaborate. danny, i am so glad you sent me this. because if i have created any misperception that i favor shorting stocks, it is completely out of character with all my books and what i used to do with my hedge fund or trading for myself. i always do puts. i ra
are again, a defensive day by and large. the big question i got early this morning is what the heck happened in germany? i don't have an answer for you, and some people are calling it a mini flash crash. the dax dropped 180 points in like, eight minutes right after the open and i don't have an explanation and there is a series floating around about fat figure trades and it was very unusual to see that. germany is now down eight in a row and we are are down 1.7% in germany. france was down 1.5% and there were many knock-on effects as a result of this and that's all i can tell you about it. carl, i think you were mentioning these ping-pong markets and that's the other big topic overnight. so you are down 234 on monday and you're up 160 on tuesday. you are down 103 on wednesday here and it's very tough for active traders to take positions. you get a lot of complaints about this stuff. you get stripped out every day depending on which side you're buying protection on, going long or going short and it's hard to take positions and it gets frustrating for active traders and of course, you can stand
game. >> defense secretary chuck hagel spoke about the bombings today while on a flight to israel saying, the attack was criminal and every region of the world is not safe from these terrible acts. >> i have not seen any intelligence that would make such a link, but as you know, all of the facts are not in. all of the dynamics and intelligence is not complete and until we know that, until we get more pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here
is investors chasing the most defensive areas, when you see coca-cola and general mills and these great companies and that's the leadership area of the market, that doesn't express global growth. we want to show those, the energy names and that's real in this country and that's not going to get the respect. the housing recovery is real and it's not going to get that respect and we need to show that is the future of the economy and to do that, the economy will stand on its own two feet and otherwise it will be renters of stocks and not buyers of stocks and they'll believe that the fed is propping up the market and the market can't stand on its own two feet. what should we do? what is an investor to do now? sure, again, the volatile that's crept out of the market can be an opportunity for investors and if we look at what's been left behind in this rally and we talk about something like energy. if you believe the global growth story is real and some of the industrial names that are down in sympathy with gold and that's where an opportunity lies and if you look at the miners and the industr
disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
to stop playing some defense with high-needing food stocks that can thrive, even when the global economy is in dire straits. take long-time cramer fave b & g foods, neglected brands from larger players, private equity firms, and bringing them back to it life. you might know b & g as pickles. b & g just reported last thursday and the company delivered an excellent quarter with in-line earnings and revenues that came in higher than expected, rising 8.8% year over year. we don't have a lot of companies in the food business that gained like that. meanwhile, the company raises for guidance, earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization. it jumped from $28 to $30 the next day and continuing to climb, $31.08 and 3.75% yield at these levels. b & g has given a 186% return since i initially recommended in october of 2010. the valuation may seem stretched with the stock trading at 19 times earnings. however, every time the stocks seem too expensive to own, they seem to go higher anyway. let's check in with the president of b & g foods and find out more about the quarter and wher
. >> gregg: you can hear the defense lawyers say that he was really brainwashed by his older brother. he was manipulated. he was emotionally and mentally easily and unduly influenced? >> no juror is going to buy it. when they look at what he has done, whether he was brainwashed many jurors will listen to this with such atrocity and such incredible damage to the million people that basically were in shutdown for 24 hours, it's ridiculous. >> it's all true but it may not be that easy during the phase of the case. jury will look at the fact this is a 19-year-old kid. we don't know what his mental capabilities was at the time. coercion aspect of it, mercedes is probably right, but i do think there is a chance he may be forgiven. >> he a college student. he is 19 years old, he is not a child. >> gregg: timothy mcveigh, they had to change the venue. do you expect a change of venue because similarly, bostonians were traumatized by it? >> i think they will try to. i don't think it will be emotional but i think it will be >> the whole country was so engaged. >> gregg: and the state could prosecut
